The Visualization Core Laboratory / GIS Remote Core Laboratories were established to bond existing capabilities and talents in the areas of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Remote Sensing (RS) and Scientific Visualization (Sci-Viz) and co-locate them in a centralized facility. This created an infrastructure of technology, data, people and institutional linkages that enables the discovery, evaluation and application of geospatial and visual data for adding value to research across various areas and disciplines.
The GIS/RS laboratories support the development, enhancement and transfer of GIS/RS applications, make geospatial data available and accessible and promote research and development innovation among users. The Sci-Viz laboratory supports the need of scientists and researchers relative to modeling, program application development and production of high quality advanced visualizations for all fields or disciplines. The TLGVRC addresses human resource development to ensure a skilled workforce which is vital for sustenance of any high level technology activity.
